Skagit County Jail

Skagit County's jail has long been outdated and overcrowded, but funding a new one was the challenge officials have struggled with for years. Discussions began in earnest in summer 2012. Once officials decided on a plan, they went to voters for approval. Approval was given on Aug. 6, 2013. But the work is far from over.
